* I haven't read too many interviews with Robert Kirkman off the regular campaign trail of major comics magazines and news sites, so it's nice to read this one by Marc-Oliver Frisch.
* David Brothers looks at recent statements by Joe Quesada on comic sales through the iPad and punches several of them in the kidneys. Brothers makes the great point generally that the needs of Direct Market retailers in terms of having time to sell material can be at odds with business decisions in the best interest of a project overall.
* Brothers pulled Quesada's statements from this interview which seems to be a must-read on several mainstream comics news trends right now.
* not comics: I may be the only one who thinks so, but I quite enjoyed this Junot Diaz short story that appeared with a Jaime Hernandez illustration in a recent New Yorker. I thought it was funny, like Ta-Nehisi Coates writing a Locas story.
